Your immune system is your body’s natural defense system. If you come in contact with a virus like the common cold or influenza, it fights off the germs to help you stay healthy.
Micronutrients — vitamins and minerals — fuel your immune system and keep it strong. Many essential micronutrients come from your diet, but maintaining the right balance of vitamins and minerals for optimal well-being isn’t always easy.
If you’re seeking ways to enhance your immune health, Daniel J. Headrick, MD, and our team at Headrick Medical Center offer IV vitamin therapy to help you feel better. Whether you’re seeking an energy, hydration, or immunity boost, IV vitamin infusions may be for you.
As fall approaches, boosting immunity is top of mind for many people. It’s time to find out how IV vitamin therapy could enhance your health and even help you fight off viruses as the weather gets colder.
Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients essential for a healthy life. Vitamins A, C, D, and E, along with magnesium, iron, zinc, and many more, work with your body to fend off viruses, toxins, and other elements in your environment that can make you sick.
Fresh fruit and vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. The food you eat is your number one source of micronutrients, which is why eating a healthy diet is so important for immune system health — especially in the fall and winter when cold and flu viruses start circulating.
Micronutrient deficiency can contribute to weakened immune systems, making it more likely that you get sick from a virus like the cold or flu. If you’re not getting enough micronutrients from your diet, IV vitamin therapy could give you the boost you’ve been looking for.
It’s almost impossible to get every micronutrient you need from food alone. IV vitamin therapy is a popular supplement to a healthy lifestyle because it delivers a nearly immediate boost of micronutrients in the body.
At Headrick Medical Center, our team offers a variety of popular vitamin cocktails, including:
Each unique blend of vitamins and other nutrients boosts function within your body. For example, we might recommend the Myers’ Cocktail if you’re seeking increased immunity and energy or a way to decrease stress and anxiety.
IV therapy is effective because intravenous delivery helps nutrients absorb more quickly and completely. While food or vitamin pills take time to digest, you can feel the benefits of IV vitamin therapy in just one 45-minute session.
Your IV vitamin infusion is delivered and monitored by a licensed health care professional. Treatment is comfortable, and you’ll simply relax as your vitamin cocktail infusion takes place.
There’s no downtime after vitamin therapy, and you can return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our office.
Along with your IV vitamin therapy regimen, don’t forget to practice strong hygiene habits to keep yourself and those around you as healthy as possible. Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds. Cover coughs and sneezes, and stay home from work or school if you’re not feeling well.
